YACHT – “Party At The NSA” (Feat. Marc Maron)
Portland electro-pop duo YACHT’s new song “Party At The NSA” is a lightweight new-wave jam about the surveillance state, which puts it firmly in the “99 Luftballoons” tradition of lightweight new-wave jams about heavy issues. The comedian and star podcaster Marc Maron played the song’s guitar solo, a connection that the group might’ve made after Maron proclaimed his fandom in this Stereogum interview and the band got stoked on it. The single is a benefit for the anti-surveillance nonprofit Electronic Frontier Foundation, and you can hear it below.
